Two New Beast Player Erin Novels Published

I bought the original two volumes of the Beast Player Erin novels thinking that was it finished but, looks like the author released another two just last month to round off the story - The Quest Arc and The Final Arc. This suggests we could see a season two of the show since the current 50 episode series is only looking to encompass the first...


Doraemon 2009, New Space Pioneer Adventure Review

The rental DVD is out for this year's Doraemon movie, "The New Record of Nobita Spaceblazer" as it seems to be officially known and someone was kind enough to dump it onto the web. I've only watched half of the original 1981 movie because the VCD copy I have is missing the second disc so I won't be able to make a comparison but, it seems they...


Top 10 Anime Characters in September's Newtype

Just something I randomly came by again while exploring the "spiritual world" of the internet - The top 10 characters in September's issue of the Newtype magazine. For the top ten male characters, we have... Wasn't really expecting Shinji to be up there. Maybe Lelouch but with Code Geass finished and the Evangelion Rebuild remakes...

Presents at Moomin Valley DS

I really enjoyed the Moomins show when it was on TV here in the UK and went onto reading the English translated Swedish books back in primary school. Found I still do like it when I watched it going through all my old videos. Anyway, kind of surprised it's getting a game since it hasn't been getting much exposure of late. Due on November...


Professor Layton and The Eternal Diva Trailer

Looks like the upcoming Professor Layton movie, due on December 19th, finally got a proper subtitle. It's now called "The Eternal Diva" instead of "The First Movie". As far as the story goes... One day, Professor Layton receives a letter from his former student and opera singer Jenice Quatrain. She tells him that her close friend...


Evangelion Rebuild 2.0 Sneaky Cam Edition

Well, this didn't take as long as the last movie to get camcorded... Kind of tempted to watch the whole thing since the DVD release probably won't be available until next year if the first movie is any indication but, that would just lower my anticipation of getting my hands on the actual package so I will refrain ^^; I did have a skim...


Hong Kong TVB Channel Gets a Reference in Canaan

Haven't really been watching or playing much lately but, decided to give "Canaan" a try because of all the good things I've heard about it. Then I spotted the TVB logo on the Air Caina TV in episode one... The scrolling Chinese headline barely made sense to me. If "Engrish" is a term for bad English then what's a term for bad Chinese I...

Kurokami The Animation Episode Summary 23, End Thoughts

Yes, I know this is well overdue but after the previous episode, it felt like the series had already ended so I wasn't in a rush to watch this. That and I've been busy translating a novel. Episode 23 PathwaysOriginal OP "Sympathizer" and ED "Iro no nai Sekai" are used. Kuro leaves to return to the Sacred Land and remembers everything...
